Blindspot Season 2 Episode 11 Review: Droll Autumn, Unmutual Lord

  • TVfanatic
Maybe it's because we're only two episodes back but Blindspot Season 2 Episode 11 feels more like it's taking accounting for another episode than a full episode itself.

"Droll Autumn, Unmutual Lord" is a slow starter that doesn't pick up until its second half and seems like its primary function is to make Jane and Weller reassess their families. Or to make us hate basketball.

The core concept of forcing the FBI to work with the CIA was played out before, and better, in Blindspot Season 1. Not to take anything away from Chad Donella, who plays Keaton, but he'll forever be Jacob Clarke from the miniseries, Taken.

Even when he's trying to be bad it's peanuts compared to what Michael Gaston did as Tom Carter.

Keaton's an annoyance; Carter was someone you full-on loathed. So asking Jane and company to work with Keaton's CIA is more of an irritation than particularly tense,

Amells Release Mysterious "Code 8" Teaser

Looking like something in the "10 Cloverfield Lane" & "Distirct 9" vein, a mysterious teaser trailer has arrived for "Code 8," a new project by actor cousins Stephen Amell ("Arrow") and Robbie Amell ("The Flash") and "Fast Five" star Sung Kang.

The "Arrow" leading man released this clip today on his social media page and explains some details behind the sci-fi piece. The story is set in a world where 4% of people possess abnormal abilities, but make up 60% of all arrests.

Robbie Amell, Aaron Abrams, Chad Donella and Alfred Rubin Thompson star in the project which Jeff Chan directs from a script by Chris Pare, and both will produce with the Amells, Geoff Mclean, and Tommy Dingwall. An extended trailer and more story details are expected to drop next week on March 22nd.

Top 7 ‘Final Destination’ Death Scenes

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

Killing teenagers on-screen is a bloody cash cow of sorts for Hollywood, however strange our desire to watch such events may be. Before the Final Destination films, the killing of meddling kids was usually up to serial killers like Jason Voorhees or Freddy Krueger. Starting in 2000, director James Wong introduced a new, elusive serial killer to teenagers – Death itself. And instead of being limited by physical capabilities or select iconic weaponry, this villain would be able to destroy its victims in any way it could imagine. Unlike Freddy, this villain would also have the ability to force screws to loosen, or blow something over with a gust of wind.

When deciding upon the “Top 7″ death scenes from the franchise’s five films, one must consider a few things: gruesomeness, memorability, and their importance to the entire philosophy of Death, according to the franchise.

Our Favorite Cameos: Tony Todd in ‘Final Destination’

Look what happens when a Final Destination film goes without Tony Todd; we get garbage like The Final Destination. Well, that’s in the past and, today, Death embarks on a brand new adventure, bringing viciously creative kills to the big screen in Final Destination 5. We first met Tony Todd’s Bludworth in the first film of the series when Clear (Ali Larter) takes Alex (Devon Sawa) to say goodbye to his best pal Tod (Chad Donella) before they bury his corpse. That takes the duo to the local funeral home where they crack open a skylight and make their way in. Sure enough, there’s Tod’s lifeless body, with a rough attempt to cover up the wire marks on his neck. That’s when Bludworth steps in to deliver some Death 101. Honestly, would you have known...

Lr's The Blu Room: Saw 3D The Final Chapter (Blu-Ray)

Saw 3D The Final Chapter (Blu-Ray)Lionsgate Home Entertainment2010/90 mins/UnratedList Price $39.99 – Now AvailableThe Saw franchise is actually a guilty pleasure for me, I like these films. Strange, since the first time I saw the original, it didn't click with me. I grew tired of its many subplots and flashbacks plus trying to guess exactly who the Jigsaw killer was. Once his identity was revealed, it gave the brilliant Tobin Bell the opportunity to create one of the most iconic villains in the horror genre. Except when you look at it from a certain point of view, Jigsaw isn't really a villain. He's not a serial killer either, but a scientist and philosopher, hoping to give people a new appreciation for their lives through trials by fire. At least that's how he looks at it. But you have to hand it to Jigsaw. Those few who survive his deadly traps

[DVD Review] Saw 3D: The Final Chapter

Billed as the final film in the series, Saw 3D is the first of the new decade, and though its hardly worse than the sequels that preceded it, it is looking more and more out of step with the times. Despite its detractors being that much louder than any of its fans, Saw was undeniably the horror franchise most emblematic of the Bush II administration era, in the same way that watching a Nightmare on Elm Street film can’t help but make you think Reagan’s still in office. But whether or not the Saw films will leave the lasting impression that those films remains to be seen, and based on this installment, a more than fair argument could be made that it will not. While the central themes of Saw could scarcely have better embodied the concerns of the last decade, its images and characters haven’t matched it in vitality.

Saw: the Final Chapter - Blu-ray Review

The Saw series comes to an end with this final entry (or so it is billed). This time around they added 3D ballyhoo to Jigsaw and his gruesome traps. However, this seventh entry started to show the seams in the long running torture trip. It would be near impossible to give a plot description without spoiling something from Saws 1-6 so you.ve been warned. Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) is still dead but his accomplice Detective Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) barely escapes a trap set by Jigsaw.s widow Jill Tuck (Betsy Russell). Jill escapes and goes to Det. Matt Gibson (Chad Donella) to testify against Hoffman if she.s granted full immunity and police protection. Around town, Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick

Saw 3D (A Review - New to video this week)

2010 - 90 mins. - Rated R

D: Kevin Greutert

C: Costas Mandylor, Betsy Russell, Sean Patrick Flanery, Cary Elwes, Tobin Bell, Dean Armstrong, Chad Donella, Gina Holden, Chester Bennington, Rebecca Marshall, Gabby West, Tanedra Howard

Novelist (Flanery) who supposedly survived one of Jigsaw's (Bell) traps and is now staking a career on that, is exposed for the liar that he is when he is forced to go through a series of traps designed to mimic his fraudulent story. In the meantime, detective Hoffman (Mandylor) tries to locate and kill Jigsaw's ex wife (Russell).

Disappointing conclusion to an overall solid horror film franchise missteps by introducing a completely new plot line from left field that introduces a new main character. This is supposed to be the series finale. This being the last entry, there needs to be plenty of screen time with the characters that helped to build this series. There the

Top Five: Diane Lane's Secretariat Back, Clint Eastwood's Hereafter Gone

Diane Lane, Amanda Michalka in Randall Wallace's Secretariat Saw 3D was the no. 1 movie at the North American box-office chart for the last time — no doubt about it — on Thursday, Nov. 4, bringing in $1.22m according to figures found at Box Office Mojo. As per various weekend box-office predictions, Saw 3D is expected to go way, way down this weekend, after losing out many of its 3D locations to Dreamworks/Paramount's Megamind, the likely box-office champion of the fall season. Also ahead of Saw 3D will be Todd Phillips' poorly received R-rated comedy Due Date, starring Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis, and Tyler Perry's drama (not a typo) For Colored Girls, with Janet Jackson and Whoopi Goldberg, among other actresses. In the Saw 3D cast: Tobin Bell, Cary Elwes, Betsy Russell, Sean Patrick Flanery, Chad Donella, and Costas Mandylor. At no. 2, Robert Schwentke's Red, starring Bruce Willis,

Saw 3D Review – They Saved The Worst For Last

Our Saw 3D review.

Director: Kevin Greutert

Starring: Costas Mandylor, Sean Patrick Flanery, Tobin Bell, Cary Elwes

Release Date: UK / Us – Out Now

Is this really the seventh film in as many years? Yes, it’s Saw o’clock and it must be time to completely forget what made the first film so good (all over again). While the original entry had the brilliant concept of people being placed in devious traps they had to survive in order to appreciate their lives, it was also great because it was a) relatively bloodless and b) you didn’t want to see a man cut off his foot. Every subsequent sequel has ignored that second point and been stuffed to the gills with complete bastards that the audience is supposed to want to see be tortured and die horribly. If this isn’t torture porn one step removed from snuff, then what is?
